Pots’, Mosaic Pictures in Glass” and “Mosaic Unlimited” will share her
techniques with you, discuss project possibilities and provide detailed
information on how to adorn almost any surface with glass mosaic
designs; cutting, assembly and finishing techniques will be covered in detail.

your questions will be answered. This class includes hands on
demonstrations and great tips and shortcuts for you to build and create
fabulous glass mosaic designs. Details about the new “Hot Mosaic
